Dernière séance
It begun with Gary Cooper when I was... I can't remember. I don't really know what has attracted me so much in these "on set pictures" for so long : the willingness to do the best together, the creative process, the incredible style and elegance of stars and workers, when it was done to make people think, believe or dream.
I thank those who make this blog possible through the publishing of these pictures on the web.

Ceux qui ont versé des larmes à la découverte du final de « Cinéma Paradisio » comprendront la raison de ce blog.
